Cal Poly Unveils Multiple Tailgate Options for 2011 Football Season


SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- Over 240 tailgating spots are open for sale and use in both lot H-12 on campus as well as on California Boulevard adjacent to Alex G. Spanos Stadium for Cal Poly football fans this fall.

Tailgating begins six hours prior to kickoff and is open to the public. Currently 26 spots are available for the season on California Boulevard and 218 spots will be open at lot H-12.

In addition, Mustang Athletics is proud to offer fans festive pre-game tailgating in lot H-12 including the 93.3 KZOZ's Cal Poly Tailgate Concert Series presented by SLO Brew before every home football game. The series will feature live, local bands beginning two hours prior to kickoff and a live radio broadcast anchored by the KZOZ morning crew of Jeff and Jeremy beginning four hours prior to kickoff for each home game this season.

Costs for the tailgate spots are $200 for the season (five home games) on California Boulevard and $10 per spot per game at lot H-12.  RVs will be permitted to tailgate and spots are $40 and available in lot H-12 only.  Fans are strongly encouraged to reserve spots for the California Boulevard tailgate area, as space is limited, and fans may do so by calling the Mustang Athletic Department at 756-0275 or indicated interest via email at

"We know that closer tailgate access to Alex G. Spanos Stadium is important for our fans, so the university has worked very hard to make these additional spaces on California Bouldvard available to loyal Mustangs," said Cal Poly director of athletics Don Oberhelman.  "We will continue to make available lot H-12 for public tailgating, and have some great things planned to make that a festive college football atmosphere."

Spots in lot H-12 will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. For the 4:05 p.m. home opener against South Dakota State on Sept. 17, tailgating begins at 10 a.m.

Tailgating is open for all fans and state rules on alcohol consumption and University tailgating rules will be enforced on game day. Click the Tailgating Policy link above for more information.
